Can attribution pay the bills?

Yesterday, I wrote the following to Google pundit, Jeff Jarvis: Can mere attribution pay the bills? If I get my news solely from, say, Google, and I have no desire to seek out any other news source, then how will the NYTimes reporter, or the NYTimes itself, ever benefit? By the simple, required attribution I see when I read their story? In the old days it was referred to as rip ‘n’ read; now it’s more like rip them off. The former approach likely required some sort of protocol, while the latter approach can be done in the time it takes to create a link. In fact, seems like I could create one of these rip’em off sites right now. No blood, no sweat, no fears. Your thoughts, Mr. Jarvis?
